Much simpler than that.
Having a rod of length L with one clock at each end, they would be automatically out of sync as both pass by the origin.
While the clock located at the B end of the rod is being reset by light signals, while passing by the origin at rest, the clock
located in the rear end A would have been forced to reset after L/v seconds. This put both clocks out of sync.
That's why, when deriving his Lorentz transforms, the cretin only used ONE POINT (x' = 0), which would be the rear end A.

What I wrote is elementary logic BEFORE Lorentz transforms are "derived". Pure logic, because when a rod of length L = BACretinism = relativismThe twins clocks are out of sync with each other. You have read Englehardt's article. Can you explain the math? How would the multiple clocks in one IRF go out of sync with each other?
pass by the origin x = 0, clock located at B (rod moving to the right side) is reset by a light signal.
IF the same procedure is applied to the clock located at the A rear end, then automatically B clock is out of sync.
1) End B passes by origin x = 0. Clock tB = clock t = 0.
2) End A passes by the origin x = 0. Clock tA = clock t = 0, BUT clock tB is running L/v seconds ahead of tA = t = 0.
This problem has no solution, unless A COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM sets clock A = L/v, which is EXACTLY the time t. So NO RESET!
Lorentz transforms:
x' = γ (x - vt)
t' = γ (t - xv/c²)
Now, reading the paper you mentioned, it's obvious what happens. He replaced
x = x'/γ + vt in t', what gives time in the moving frame related to position in the moving frame:
t' = γ (t - x'v/(γc²) - vt v/c²) = γ (t - t v²/c² - x'v/(γc²) ) = γ (t/γ² - x'v/(γc²) = (t/γ) - x'v/c²
t′ = (1/γ)t − x′v/c²
If, once using Lorentz, Einstein tries to sync t' when t = 0, HE CAN'T because for t = 0, t' = - x′v/c²
Being t' = - x′v/c² WHEN t = 0 only has ONE SOLUTION: Using only ONE CLOCK at x' = 0. Then he could synchronize ONE moving
clock located at the rear end of the rod BA (or just the clock A).
That's ONE OF MANY deceiving manipulations of the 1905 paper. It's WRONGFUL, it's called CHEATING, COOKING, FUDGING, etc.
But cretinism = relativism has prevailed on this evil, rotten world.

Einstein himself tacitly admitted this in the quote where he says the moving frame could not have more than one clock.
I admit I don't yet have a grasp of their argument.
I am surprised that the defenders of relativity have not already contended with it.

x' = γ (x - vt)
t' = γ (t - xv/c²)
Replacing x by x' in t' gives
t′ = (1/γ)t − x′v/c²
For every value of x' (where clocks are placed), this equation clearly shows that those clocks are out of sync in the same inertial frame:
Being t = 0, v = 1 m/s, c = 1 and x' being increased in 1 m steps,
t = 0, t'(x') = − x′v/c²
t = 0, t'(0) = 0 -------> Clock C0 at origin x' = 0

t = 0, t'(2) = -2 -------> Clock C2 at x' = 2 m
....

All the N+1 clocks, equally spaced in the moving frame, are OUT OF SYNC (as perceived by the relativist at x = 0 when t = 0).

Yes, from the perspective of the "stationary" frame, the other frames' clocks are out of sync within their frame. How can this be in an IRF in real physics? It can't. That disproves SR.

In any case, it reduces, atAll the N+1 clocks, equally spaced in the moving frame, are OUT OF SYNC (asExactly, as PERCEIVED by the observer who remains at x = 0.

Let's call the frames K'(t'x') and K(t,x).
t'≠ t means that the temporal coordinates of the event
are different in K' and K.
That doesn't mean that the coordinate clocks i K
not are in sync with each other, and that the coordinate
clocks i K' not are in sync with each other,
Being t = 0, v = 1 m/s, c = 1 and x' being increased in 1 m steps,You can't mix natural and SI units, so with v = 1 m/s and x' = N m,
c = 299792458 m/s, γ ≈ 1+5.56E-18
t = 0, t'(x') = − x′v/c²The coordinates of event N in in K' = ( tₙ', N m)
the coordinates of event n in K = (0 s,xₙ)
The LT:
xₙ = γ(N + v⋅tₙ)m ≈ (1+5.56E-18)⋅(N+v⋅0)m = (1+5.56E-18)⋅N m
tₙ' = γ(0 - vxₙ/c^2) = -γvxₙ/c^2
tₙ' = -(1+5.56E-18)⋅1⋅(1+5.56E-18)⋅N⋅1.11E-17) s ≈ - N⋅1.11E-17 s
t = 0, t'(0) = 0 -------> Clock C0 at origin x' = 0Nonsense.
t = 0, t'(1) = -1 -------> Clock C1 at x' = 1 m
t = 0, t'(2) = -2 -------> Clock C2 at x' = 2 m
....
t = 0, t'(N) = -N -------> Clock CN at x' = N m
The coordinates of event N are:
in K : tₙ = 0 s, xₙ = (1+5.56E-18)⋅N m
in K': tₙ'≈ -N⋅1.11E-17 s, xₙ'≈ N m
Approximated to 15 significant digits we get:
When tₙ = 0.00000000000000, tₙ'= 0.00000000000000
This shouldn't surprise you.
When v = 1m/s the result will to a very good approximation be equal
to the results of Galilean relativity, which is that all clocks
always show the same. t'= t, remember?
But you didn't think of that, and got a result which was

HOWEVER;
If the coordinates in K of event N are t = 0 s, x = γN m
then the coordinates in K' of event N are t'=γ²⋅N⋅v/c² s, x' = N m
So why is your statement below absolute ridiculous?
All the N+1 clocks, equally spaced in the moving frame, are OUT OF SYNC (as perceived by the relativist at x = 0 when t = 0).Because the N+1 different t' are the temporal coordinates of
N+1 different events. It is NOT N+1 coordinate clocks which,
simultaneous in K', show different values.
The N+1 events are simultaneous in K,
but they are NOT simultaneous in K'.
When the coordinate clock at x' = N m show t'=γ²⋅N⋅v/c² s,

This:

He said the moving frame of reference can have only one clock.It is hard for anything to be more self-contradictory nonsense than to have different times at the same time in a single IRF, as relativity does by the concession of several relativists' comments above. Reductio ad absurdum. Relativity is nonsense.

Your assertion that RoS is wrong is refuted by experimental evidence in
the GPS atomic clocks being set to run slow locally to compensate for
the RoS between the earth's surface and conditions at the satellite.
RoS happens because of time dilation and there are many experiments confirming time dilation, here's an example:

Whoever accepts relativity doesn't understand it. Everyone who understands it rejects it.
He said the moving frame of reference can have only one clock.
What was he hiding?
If more than one clock is used in the moving frame, they go out of synchronization with each other due to the LT.
That is, the clocks within one IRF go out of sync with each other.
An inpatient escapes from the lunatic asylum, steals a car and starts driving on a freeway against the traffic. He turns on the radio and an announcer comes on saying:"There is a crazy man who escaped from the local lunatic asylum and is drivingagainst the normal flow of traffic". The lunatic mumbles to himself: "They are all crazy, they are all driving against the traffic".
That crazy man is you, Dick Hertz, pat dolan, "Lou"....

Paul, I have read more articles in Skeptical Inquirer and Skeptic magazines than you have. Rational Wiki is a purveyor of the science-pseudoscience dichotomy used to avoid discussion with alternative views by mainstream Big Science boondogglers.
And yet you still have zero evidence in support of your wacky theories. ZERO! Relativity still rules until it is proven to be incorrect,

Sylvia.
There are two clocks in the moving frame, oe at each end of the moving rod.
“For the sake of simplicity” Einstein has drawn only a
single clock on the upper rod, but in agreement with his principles
outlined in Sec. II, we are entitled adding to all points
in S0 a pertaining clock and assuming that these additional
clocks have been synchronized like those in S. The first
graphics may then be complemented by two more clocks
pointing to t0 ¼0 as they are synchronized with the one at
x0 ¼0 (Fig. 2).

This behavior by Laurence makes me think there's some secret
crackpot-only anti-relativity discussion board somewhere that Laurence follows. Someone on the board bragged that Englehardt quotes Einstein stating whatever, but without providing the quote itself. Laurence
treats that as Gospel and repeats it here as factual, but he isn't smart enough to find the Einstein quote (assuming it actually exists) himself.
So Laurence just hems and haws hoping people will just believe him or he somehow gets the quote.
Meanwhile, on the secret discussion board, there's likely a post by
Laurence reading "PLEASE can someone provide me with the Einstein quote
that Englehardt refers to!!!"

Is it because of your own prejudice?
Because of your own miscomprehension?
Because you are a reality denier?
He said the moving frame of reference can have only one clock.
He said the moving frame of reference can have only one clock.My conclusion is that Englehardt's and Crother's criticism is not a steel man of relativity.
What was he hiding?
If more than one clock is used in the moving frame, they go out of synchronization with each other due to the LT.
That is, the clocks within one IRF go out of sync with each other.
